Looking Forward--12 Goals for 2014

Since I am not that great at achieving a whole long list of goals, I figured that maybe I can achieve a short list of goals.  Maybe one per month?  So I figured out the twelve most important things that I want to accomplish next year and here they are:

  1. Go to Europe.  I simply MUST go to Europe next year.
  2. Work at the World Series of Poker again.  This will fund the trip to Europe.
  3. Walk a marathon.  Why do I keep torturing myself like this?
  4. Complete a Centurion Challenge.  That's 1000km of walking!
  5. Go to San Francisco.  I've been wanting to go for ages.
  6. Go to New Orleans.  I've also wanted to go here for ages.
  7. Get a new washer and dryer.  We got these used and I would like a new set.
  8. Get a new refrigerator.  We got this used as well and I would like a new one.
  9. Hike the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim in one day.  I've been wanting to do this since last year.
  10. Visit the hubby's family in New York and Connecticut.  We haven't seen them in ages.
  11. Visit my friends and family in Washington.  I like to visit Washington once a year to visit people and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
  12. Go to Asia.  This is a long shot money-wise but I would still like to go.
Besides a few items for the house, I really want to travel this year.  We used to travel quite a bit but hubby is so happy in Las Vegas (perfect weather, lots of entertainment, everyone comes HERE to visit us) that he doesn't want to go anywhere else!  So I will try to get him to leave Las Vegas and hopefully on each of these trips I can get a bunch of walking in as well!


  1. Great goals! I'd like to steal a few of them myself! Travel is so wonderful :-)

    1. We are definitely are going more for "experience" goals next year instead of "stuff" goals!

  2. That's a lot of traveling. It looks like a lot of fun.

  3. If our cottage wasn't so small, we could have you stay with us, but there's just no room, dang it! New Orleans is supposedly a 2-1/2 or 3 hour drive from where we are.

    1. We will definitely have to meet up when I get to the New Orleans area!
